AbstractIn a sociology class on race, ethnicity, sex, and gender, the professor asks the students to keep journals as a way for students to share their thoughts and feelings about what they read and learn. The journals often include very personal information. After the journals are graded by the professor, he leaves them outside his office door to be picked up. Does this practice violate the professor's obligation to protect the confidentiality of his students?
